Rishi Sunak looks set to push through his secretive deal with the EU over Northern Ireland without a vote in the Commons. The move could enrage Brexiteers, furious at what they would see as thwarting Parliament and the will of the British people. Speaking with Sophy Ridge on Sky News this morning, deputy prime minister Dominic Raab said “inevitably” Parliament will get to “express its view” but stopped short of committing to a vote.

A vote on the deal could potentially humiliate Mr Sunak after hardline Brexiteers warned that up to 100 Tory MPs could oppose the new post-Brexit trading arrangements.

Mr Raab said there has been “real progress” on a Brexit deal and “hopefully there will be good news in a matter of days”.
